The author reflects on Tru2way Developers Conference. It is the author's view that consumers are resoundingly interested in digital cable without the set-top box for the three reasons, that is, no monthly set-top rental fees, no futzing with wiring, and one remote control. She also inferred that this year's conference substantially deepened the conversations across the wide landscape that is Tru2way.
